This guitar was one of the real highlights of the NAMM Show for me. I was in the market for a Fender electric guitar (Telecaster or Stratocaster), but I really love playing and writing with an acoustic guitar. I currently have a Godin steel string Multiac, an old Ovation from the 70s I play almost every day, and an Epiphone Les Paul Standard Goldtop. When I saw the Fender Acoustisonic I couldn’t wait to try one on for size. Although I don’t own one, I see one in my future. I loved the feel and and the look. It definitely attracts attention. The applications are obvious, particularly if you play in a band, as I do. Our repertoire includes hard rock and Eagles’ songs. Using the Fender Acoustisonic, I can travel light.
DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION
Thin and light with an open-pore satin finish, the hollow body is naturally loud and resonant with plenty of projection. An inset top and integrated forearm contour make it comfortable and easy to play.
A mix of classic analog and future technologies, the Fender and Fishman®-designed Acoustic Engine delivers a variety of acoustic and electric voices.
